            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On June 4, 1991, the above-named petitioner-owner  filed  a  Petition
        for Administrative Review against an order issued on May 2,  1991  by
        the Rent Administrator, Gertz Plaza 92-31 Union Hall Street, Jamaica, 
        New York, concerning housing accommodations relati g  to  the  above-
        described docket number.  

        The Commissioner has reviewed all the evidence in the record and  has
        carefully considered that portion  of  the  record  relevant  to  the
        issues raised by the administrative appeal.

        The original proceeding was commenced on September 26, 1990,  by  the
        owner filing an application to restore rent based on the  restoration
        of services.

        In its answer filed on  October  29,  1990,  the  tenant  denied  the
        allegations set  forth  in  the  owner's  application  and  otherwise
        asserted that defective conditions still exist.

        Thereafter on January 28, 1991, the subject apartment  was  inspected
        by D.H.C.R. which confirmed the continued existence of  some  of  the
        defective conditions.

        Based on said inspection, the Administrator partially granted on  May
        2, 1991 the owner's application by restoring the legal regulated rent 
        in the amount of $9.00 per month and advising the  owner  to  "refile
        for the remaining $11.50 when all services have  been  restored  ..."
        because of these continued defective conditions:

             "1.  Bathroom floor tiles are loose and missing.
              2.  Bathroom window has a broken glass pane.
              3.  Bathroom toilet seat is defective.
              4.  Bathroom light switch and fixture is repaired in 
                  unworkmanlike manner.






          Docket Number: FF 210014-RO

              5.  Master bedroom ceiling is repaired in unworkmanlike
                  manner."


        In this petition, the owner states in substance that on May  8,  1991
        and July  17,  1991,  the  tenant  signed  a  work  order  indicating
        completed repairs.

        In a reply filed on June 26, 1991, the tenant denied the  allegations
        set forth in the owner's petition.

        After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion  that
        this petition should be denied.

        The owner admits that repairs were made subsequent to the issuance of 
        the Administrator's order.  Then, the Administrator's order based  on
        an inspection finding the continued existence of defective conditions 
        was correct when issued.

        This Order and Opinion is  issued  without  prejudice  to  the  owner
        filing an application for rent restoration based on  the  restoration
        of services, if the facts so warrant.

        THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent and Eviction  Regulations,  it
        is

        ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is,  denied,  and
        that the District Rent Administrator's order be, and the same  hereby
        is, affirmed.

        ISSUED:




                                                                      
                                        ELLIOT SANDER
                                        Deputy Commissioner
